The Supper Series

We’ve been busy over here at Boundary Bay, planning a summer full of entertainment for Bellingham residents and visitors alike. What’s in store for this summer? You can expect good ol’ classics like our Friday Fish Fry’s, Brewers Cruises on the Bay and Happy Hour BBQ’s with Robert Sarazin Blake — but we’re switching gears and adding even more entertainment to our weekly lineup: Irish music Monday’s to start, Outdoor Improv with the Upfront on Tuesdays, acoustic open mic nights, food truck Wednesdays and The Supper Series. More details to come on these events as we near June.

One of the things we’re most excited about, is the Boundary Bay Supper Series we’re launching this spring and continuing on into summer. Brewer Bryan Krueger, Head Chef Matt Hansen and Floor Manager Daniel Trulson, have been collaborating over the last few months to bring you a delicious, informative and cohesive series of Beer Pairings Dinners and Preview Nights. The Supper Series is geared towards those looking for an introduction into the world of food and beer pairing, with the ultimate goal to increase overall knowledge of the art of paring. Call it, courses within a course, if you will.

Bryan, Matt and Dan are professionals within their individual fields, but what’s more special, is seeing their passion and expertise unite as they prepare and collaborate for the series. Join them this Saturday, March 28th at 4p.m. for the first Supper Series Preview Night at our New Brew Facility (located right next door to Boundary Bay at 103 Railroad Ave. Bellingham, WA 98225). Enjoy hors d’oeuvres paired with a small flight of craft beer as a brief introduction to our first five course Pairing Dinner on April 11th. Preview Night menu:

  • Cedar Dust IPA with Chichirone, roasted Serrano coulis
  • Irish Red with Washed Rind cheese (cowgirl red hawk)
  • Dubbel with venison slider

Give us a call to make a reservation for Saturday’s preview: (360) 657-5593. ($6 per person, 21+ )

Valentine’s Dinner

valentines_posterOne of our favorite evenings here at the Brewery, is our annual Valentine’s Dinner. It’s a chance for our brewery to switch gears for a night and get a little bit cozier. We whip up a special menu, bring in table side music and set up lots of tables for two.  While our regular menu will still be available, we’re hoping to tempt you with some delicious treats that you can’t always find here at Boundary:

  • Trio of Scallops with Grapefruit Gremolata and Basil Puree
  • Blood Orange & Date Salad
  • Arctic Char with Blood Orange Hollandaise, Sumac rice pilaf and Broccolini 
  • 12 oz. Rib-Eye Steak with whipped gorgonzola served with mashed potatoes and chard

Beer Week at Boundary

Ready for Beer Week Bellingham? The planning is well underway, and we thought you might like to know what we’ve got lined up here at Bbay:

KEVIN.Still002According to the owner of Chocolate Necessities, Kevin Buck, nothing pairs better with chocolate, than a tasty brew (and yes, this includes wine!) Naturally, we think so too : ) so, we’ve partnered up with Kevin to bring you an educational tasting experience that will surely please your pallets. Chocolate Necessities imports and produces some of the finest chocolates you will ever taste… We use a variety of remarkable ingredients gathered through years of inquiry into specialty sources — Amarena cherries, Agostoni chocolate and real pastry liquors from Italy, Vanuatu chocolate from Belgium, vanilla from Tahiti.

Everything we make is handcrafted to give you the best chocolate experience.  So why not offer a two-fer; the best chocolate AND beer experience in one!? Stop by during any day of Beer Week and sample Chocolate Necessities paired with Boundary Bay Beers. How does our Imperial IPA paired with Chocolate covered Lemon Sticks from France sound? Or maybe an Oatmeal Stout with Vanuatu milk chocolate from Belgian? There’s so much more…

On Monday, September 23rd at 7:00, we’ll be hosting a delicious 5 course beer dinner led by Chef Matt Hansen and our Head Brewer Aaron Jacob Smith. Tickets are of very limited availability and will go fast. They can be purchased at Boundary Bay for $50 a person.  (21+ Only). Here’s how the menu is shaping up:

Roasted Yellow Pepper & Jerusalem Artichoke Soup, w/ Szechuan Peppercorn ESB
Locally Foraged Mushroom and Goat Cheese Parcel, paired with Harvest Rye Ale
Lamb and Rose Stuffed Quail with Harissa and Apricots, paired with Amber Ale
Choucroute Garnie made with local Carne sausages, infused with Scotch Ale

IMG_1968Oktoberfest in the Beer Garden at 5pm on Thursday, September 26th!  We know we know, its not technically October yet…but we just can’t wait that long. Get ready to put on your lederhosen and tighten up your dirndl, were going to be dancing, drinkin’ and eating pretzels all night long! Not only are we hosting our annual celebration in the Beer Garden, but the next day on the 27th, we’re also running an Oktoberfest BREWS Cruise on the Bay with San Juan Cruises.  Two days of Oktoberfestitivies…WE THINK YES!

Don’t forget the Beer and Bike ride set for the 29th at Noon. The biking parade will start at Boundary, head to Kulshan, to Elizabeth Station, Chuckanut Brewery and finally end at the Copper Hog. Last year’s ride was a blast and we cant wait for you to be apart of it!
